Bing is moving fast these days. After introducing Britannica Online Encyclopedia Answers in its search results, Bing will now display Qwikis in its search results.
What are Qwikis?
Qwikis are interactive presentations combining images, videos, maps and spoken narration. In other words, Qwikis are a gateway for further exploration that offer a unique, visual experience to help you quickly get information and do more. With features like snapshot, which we introduced with the recent Bing redesign, we made it easier to take action directly from the results page.
With Qwikis and other visual elements in Bing, we’re helping people decide what they want to do by creatively exposing them to information that might otherwise take them awhile to find, says The Bing Team.
Bing Search lays a lot of attention to offering a seamless user experience, and it is with this in mind that Bing decided to include Qwikis. You will be offered relevant information to you, without the web page getting too heavy.
When you search for something, under the Wikipedia entry, you will be offered a button to “Watch the Qwiki“.
Clicking on the link will open the video. This will allow you to be the information on the Bing search results page itself.
Bing has been improving over the last few months and is a cool search engine if you are looking out for an alternative search engine. The relevance of its search results to the search terms is also very high.
Maybe you want to visit Bing.com right away and check out this cool new feature and give the search engine a go for a week or two – just to see how you like it.
